NEW ON THE MARKET Probiotic targets Virbrio and ammonia in hatcheries
Keeton Industries has launched Hatchery Prime Smart Pellets, an easy to use, stress reducing probiotic specifically formulated for fish and shrimp hatcheries. The pellets were developed to reduce Vibrio and other pathogenic bacteria while eliminating ammonia and hydrogen sulfide. As a result, hatcheries have experienced increased growth and survival, improved feed conversion rates and higher yields. Other reported benefits include advanced harvest, more consistent growth, improved water quality and cleaner tank bottoms. Ease of use is another key factor: Hatchery Prime comes in pellet form, so application is extremely fast and easy. The pellets can be simply tossed into the tank, with no need for mixing, measuring, weighing, activating or incubating.
All-in-one rotifer and Artemia enrichment INVE Aquaculture has expanded its enrichment portfolio with a new product, Easy Dry Selco® (EDS). As a recognized reference and innovator in fish hatchery culture, INVE Aquaculture, part of Benchmark, has always dedicated special attention to early -stage nutrition to increase survivability and performance of marine fish and shrimp. INVE offers a range of liquid and dry enrichment products that support the development of healthy and performing fry by optimizing the nutritional value of live feed such as rotifers and Artemia. As a result of the continuous technical development of new products and protocols, INVE has now expanded its enrichment portfolio with a brand-new formulation: Easy Dry Selco®. Easy Dry Selco® is a dry enrichment with a formulation that boosts rotifers and Artemia with balanced levels of fats, proteins, vitamins, key minerals, immuno-stimulants, essential amino acids and flavonoids, turning live-feed into a very functional enrichment.
Because it adds a lot more than just lipids content to the live feed, the protein-rich formula of EDS is specifically suitable for fast growing marine fish larvae and completes the nutritional balance of the earlystage fish feed, optimizing fry quality and robustness.
“Simple and reliable as it is, EDS provides the most advanced, complete and cost effective enrichment for rotifer and Artemia production,” said Alessandro Moretti, Product Manager Fish Hatchery Easy Dry Selco® can be used in the traditional way after harvesting, or directly into the culture tank. Rotifers Enrichment is finalized in 6 -9 hours. For Artemia, INVE Aquaculture recommends harvesting 18-22 hours after the start of the enrichment.
